Demolition of the old Ellon Academy building has been completed.
Aberdeenshire Council’s Formartine area committee is now expected to discuss a report looking into future options for the site when it meets on April 25.
And residents of Ellon have voiced their aspirations for the future of the former school.
Among the suggestions was creating a new doctors’ practice at the spot, sheltered accommodation or a space for new shops to attract more people to the town.
The buildings were replaced by a £36 million community campus at Cromleybank last summer.
Council co-leader and SNP councillor for the area Richard Thomson said: “Looking to the future we have an absolutely fantastic new academy in the town, and a chance to consider how the old site can continue to serve the area.”
